Yesterday, while the whole world was complaining about the annual “singles awareness day”, we turned our attention to the Berlin Film Festival where The Lost City of Z made it’s international premiere. In a nutshell, this movie looks like it needs to immediately be added to your list of movies you want to see ASAP, and here’s why:
First of all, the movie stars Son’s of Anarchy hunk Charlie Hunnam and Twilight vampire hunk (if you’re into that) Robert Pattinson. So no matter what, all of you girls are going to have something nice to look at throughout the movie. Furthermore, the actors deliver superior performances of complex characters that will keep anyone interested throughout the movie.
Also, the plot of the movie is derived from the best seller book written by David Grann. So, we know from that the story is of high quality, and sure to have twists and turns for us viewers.
The movie is based in the Amazon jungle, and is the story of Percy Fawcett, Hunnam, a skilled soldier who is ridiculed for his family’s past. This causes him to snatch up the opportunity to travel to South America to fulfill a quest resolving a land dispute between Bolivia and Brazil, and restore some honor to his family name. During his trip, he uncovers archaeological anomalies that lead to his theory of the existence of an ancient civilization, prompting a hunger inside of him to discover the lost city of Z and learn the secrets it may hold.
Another reason this film looks great is because it has a lot of great old-school features to it that remind many of the Heart of Darkness, or the Wrath of God. It is a jungle adventure film that also addresses some complex issues such as white racism, or the savage greed of the western world — perhaps an attribute of modern civilization that has only grown over time.
